Welcome to the Birch family A-Z list. We have listed them by scientific name because it is a constant and does not vary region to region or person to person.  We have included the various common names associated with each scientific name to help you find the right tree.  Some common names can apply to more than one tree species, so if you are having trouble narrowing down your search, take a look at our A-Z Common Name List to see which scientific names match up to the common name you are searching for.

This is not a comprehensive list but we are working on adding more all the time.  We hope you find our site helpful!
